Wainbee offers products perfectly suited for washdown applications. Its selection of connectors, fittings, cylinders and displays from leading manufacturers are built to stand up to the demands of the food and beverage, pharmaceutical and chemical sectors, as well as other industries where a clean environment is a top priority.
Connectors and fittings
Wainbee can supply Parker Legris LIQUIfit connectors and fittings. These units are ideal for washdown environments, and are particularly suited for liquid transfer applications such as dispensers and water purification systems. LIQUIfit features an innovative sealing and gripping design that drastically reduces bacteria growth, resulting in 100 per cent cleanliness. For example, LIQUIfit push-in fittings with metal adapters are designed to ensure reliable and compact connections, as well as excellent robustness in liquid transfer applications. They feature easy-to-clean external surfaces, patented sealing technology, a bio-sourced polymer body that meets the most severe food process regulations, compatibility with beverages, and unsurpassed chemical and mechanical resistance, even at high temperatures.
Wainbee also carries Clippard cylinders in 303 and 304 stainless steel for harsh environments. They feature a Nitrile rod wiper to keep potential contaminants from penetrating inside the cylinder, and are available with bore sizes from ¾ to two inches. In addition, FDA-compliant grease for lubrication is standard for all Clippard food-grade cylinders, as well as FDA-compliant rod and clevis bushings.
The company also offers the Parker IX PowerStation, the most reliable and powerful supervisory HMI. The InteractX (IX) PowerStation combines a rugged, industrial design with sleek, modern esthetics. Packed with the time-tested, powerful InteractX software, this HMI provides SCADA-like capabilities in a thin, economical package. With an IP65 rated aluminum bezel, you can count on the IX to withstand the toughest washdown environments. The unit is offered in a variety of sizes, from a compact seven inches to an impressive 22 inches. In addition, the depth of each HMI offers minimal intrusion into the cabinet, allowing the IX to fit where other HMIs cannot.
